For example, team self-efficacy is the extent to which the members of a team believe the team is efficacious performing its task. The agreement of the team members is typically assessed only to decide whether the mean represents the team members’ beliefs. Yet, in considering the most extreme responses of team members, a bimodal distribution of some other configuration might be of interest in determining team self-efficacy. Theoretically meaningful algorithms for indexing team self-efficacy are getting more attention as multiple levels of analysis are taken into account.

Most research questions fit within a framework of investigating the effects of some factors that can be seen as inputs on team processes and, in turn, on one or more of the three output criteria of performance. Today the I-P-O paradigm still dominates research on team effectiveness. However, this theoretical structure has been expanded in two important and critical ways: by time and by levels of analysis. In terms of time, process is, by definition, dynamic. Team process constructs are the result of team member cognitions, emotions, and behaviors that occur in the life of the team.

Another form of training, cross training, requires team members to learn the tasks of all of their team members, to the extent technologically possible, in order to increase their ability to back up others who are overloaded, to monitor others’ behavior, and to detect potential problems for others. Back-up behavior is particularly critical in military settings where sudden spikes in demand for high levels of effort and performance by one or two team members may require others in the team to come to their aid.
